May 19, 2011 – The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has available a new
safety manual for knuckleboom log loaders. The 52-page AEM Knuckleboom Log
Loader Safety Manual was developed under manufacturer guidance of the
association’s Forestry Equipment Council and covers log loaders that are
equipped with a grapple and are either stationary or mounted on a truck,
trailer, rubber-tired carrier, or crawler.

The manual covers current industry practice in machine design and construction as
well as up-to-date industry safety best practices for equipment preparation,
operation, maintenance, and transport. AEM safety manuals outline common sense
do's and don'ts in clear language and an easy-to-follow format and are a
convenient and cost-effective way to provide in-house safety training. Graphics
reinforce the safety messages and are in pictorial style to harmonize with the
latest machine safety sign and manufacturer manual practices. ISO safety
symbols are incorporated where appropriate. Safety alert messages, use of the
"Safety Alert symbol" and use of "Signal Words" are revised
to conform to ANSI Z535.6:2006 standards.

AEM's
safety and training materials cover more than 40 types of equipment used in
agricultural, construction, forestry, and utility applications. The association
initiated its safety-tools program more than 40 years ago to provide job-proven
and time-tested suggestions that promote safety-conscious attitudes and
performance. In addition to accident prevention, benefits include improved
worker productivity and less equipment downtime for repairs.

All
AEM safety manuals, videos, and related safety and training products are
available from the AEM website. Some safety materials are offered in
downloadable files or in DVD format. AEM members receive discounts on select
materials.
